Things you will need:

T-shirt of your choice. Try this first with an old tee before trying it on your favorite one. You’ll get ample practice with the first one to pull off the second one marvelously.

A pair of scissors.

A marker preferably black (if your T-shirt is not black!). Make sure that you mark the shirt where you wish to cut it at each step. So you don’t end up with a super low neckline or a really short tee which will ruin everything.

Steps to make the top:

Step 1

Cut your desired neckline.  It is important to choose what kind of neckline you want, whether you want a little loose and droopy one or a tight one. You should draw with a pen the kind of neckline you want on the T-shirt and then cut it accordingly. We recommend that you wear the T-shirt and draw the neckline accordingly.

Step 2

Cut off the sleeves to transform your full sleeved or half sleeved T-shirt into a tank. If you want spaghetti strap-thin, cut your T-shirt so that the straps are very thin. If you want just tank top straps, make them broad. I suggest doing the latter as its easier to do and requires less finesse.  You can directly start from Step 3 if you chose to work on a tank top.

Step 3

Cut the back of the shirt straight across your hips. This will make the back of your T-shirt a little shorter than the front. Make sure you mark till where you want to cut it. It is also important to do the cutting slowly or the entire tee may rip. If you want a shorter cropped shirt then feel free to cut till you think its perfect.

Step 4

Cut straight up till the middle of the front of the T-shirt. After which cut in to make two long pointed ends, this is where you would want your knot to be. Its suggested to make the cuts somewhere below your belly button.


Tie together the cuts so that it looks like a knot. You can tie it in the form of a ribbon as well. But do tie it two times to assure it doesn’t open up.
